Check on your Sump Pump

With Spring comes rain, and snow melt. The ground is wet, and that water needs to go somewhere. If your home relies on a sump pump, the worry that your sump pump will be up to the watery challenge is real. If a sump pump fails, basement or crawlspace flooding can result, causing problems. It is important to be able to recognize if your sump pump needs some additional attention, saving you from additional costs and headaches.

A well-maintained sump pump will operate silently. If you can hear your sump pump making lots of noise. It’s time to investigate. Noise is not a good sign, and maintenance is likely required. Call your plumber to ensure that your sump pump is repaired, so you do not have water backing up.

In the Spring with the wet weather, is when your sump pump will generally work the hardest. If your sump pump is failing to remove water, it could be either your pump is overwhelmed, or a failing sump pump. Check with your plumber if you require a higher capacity sump pump or have a backup one installed, for those extra wet Springs.

Does it seem like your sump pump is running all day and night? Is it removing water very slowly? Call your plumber to do some maintenance on your sump pump, sometimes the pump requires some extra servicing to ensure that your basement or crawlspace remains water free.
